My question deals with the ability to fax. Though I do not own a fax machine (either stand-alone or all-in-one), I have been able to fax MS Word and PDF docs by using the MS Send Fax Wizard. Though I don't send very many faxes, I'd like to continue to have that ability with the Telo if that's possible.
Right now, while I'm awaiting the porting of my landline # to ooma, I have a phone cable connected to the back of my PC to the wall jack. But what can I do to send faxes once I go to dry-loop?
1) As the previous post suggested, drop the fax baud rate to 9600.
2) Prefix your outbound call with *99 - this increases the call quality for fax and such (uses high quality codec)
3) Do NOT increase the "resolution" of your fax settings. Keep them as "standard" or whatever, do not use "high"
and after all the above-- keep in mind there are NO GUARANTEES that faxing will work at all. The above recipe, however, has proven useful to many who are faxing succesfully.
